Drunk restaurant diner leaves generous $1000 tip then asks for it back the next day when he's sobered up

A drunk customer who put down a tip of $1000 for returned to the restaurant the next morning to ask for it back.

The unnamed man was dining at the Thailicious restaurant in Edgewater, Colorado when he tucked into a meal which was so good he wanted to reward it.

But the waiter was stunned when the reward turned out to be $1,000.

He took it to his boss, Bee Anantatho, who was thrilled, but warned her staff to hold on to the money overnight.

“He said he’d read a lot of stories like this, but usually the tip is a couple hundred dollars, not $1,000,” she told the Denver Post , adding: “He was so happy.”

The next morning, the hungover diner returned with a red face.

“He said, ‘I’m sorry, I was drunk. He didn’t know he put all the money he had in the checkbook,” Ms Anantatho.

He paid the bill plus around $100 as a tip instead of $1,000.
